“When we all commit to eradicating adverse childhood experiences, we’ll end this never-ending trauma.” Anna, Age Eight
Make safe childhoods and resilient families your city's #1 priority.
We can end childhood trauma, abuse and neglect.
We partner with leadership to create family-friendly communities across the city.
We’re preventing childhood adversity, trauma and maltreatment through a data-driven process of continuous quality improvement (CQI)—focused on strengthening the family-friendly agencies that serve children, youth and parents.
Resilience Leaders is for courageous and compassionate leaders who are committed to achieving measurable and meaningful results for children.
Through our program, course and ongoing innovation, we’re creating a seamless system of safety and care in each of our communities by working toward Family-Friendly City, version 2.0. We’re engaging all our elected officials in comprehensive change. Our plan goes beyond “feel good PR” activities and gets us to measurable results that are meaningful to all our families.

FAMILY-FRIENDLY CITY 2.0 THE KEY PILLARS OF CHILDHOOD SAFETY
"The biggest question is this: Do we collectively want to solve the epidemic of trauma, or do we keep asking families to solve this problem on their own?" — from from Anna, Age Eight: Preface: Waking up from a bad dream
Resilience Leaders course participants are trained to develop local innovations, focused on strengthening vital family services shown to empower families. Our program is guided by the book Anna, Age Eight: The data-driven prevention of childhood trauma and maltreatment by Katherine Ortega Courtney, PhD and Dominic Cappello.
Anna, Age Eight explores the root causes of childhood adversity and the conditions of the communities where families live, known as the social determinants of health and a predictor of health and safety. There are ten service areas that make a city "family-friendly 2.0." Identify your priority area.
We provide city leadership and program participants with the Resilient Community Experience Survey that’s used to assess how accessible vital services are to children and families. Resilience Leaders projects focus on improving the ten interconnected sectors above in collaboration with child welfare and local government.
